Vision, Mission and Core Values

CLDF's 30th birthday cake


Our vision is a world in which young adults and children are not limited by their liver disease; the childhood liver diseases will be understood, prevented and treated effectively, ensuring that babies, children, young people, their families and adults diagnosed in childhood achieve their full potential.


CLDF’s mission is to take action against the effects of childhood liver disease by:

  • Funding vital research
  • Informing and educating healthcare professionals, parents and the public on the signs and symptoms
  • Campaigning to give young people and their families one strong voice
  • Providing young adults, children and their families with tailored support services

These tailored services include:


CLDF acts professionally and ethically with all stakeholders; young people with a liver disease, their families, medical professionals involved in treating young people with liver diseases and the public at large. CLDF treats all young people with liver disease and their family with dignity, respect and compassion.

CLDF cares for the whole family.

CLDF provides a high quality, professional and confidential emotional support service.

CLDF acts in a professional and business-like manner and adheres to relevant professional codes of conduct as indicated by the Charity Commission, the Association of Medical Research Charities and Institute of Fundraising.

CLDF will encourage opportunities for joint activities with other organisations, charitable or otherwise, provided they meet with the overall objectives of the Foundation and do not contravene any other core value or belief.
